So, the numbers are in, and based on 2016 survey data 34.5% of people prefer social media for their customer service channel. That’s according to this new infographic put out by ProvideSupport. This is up from 29% in 2014 as reported in Infograph: Five9’s “Talk to me: Customers Crave Personalized Support in a Social World” Which means that more than one-third of survey respondents state that if they had their choice, they would prefer to interact with you through social media. It also states that 90% of people surveyed have used social media to communicate directly with a brand. This shows clearly that more and more of your customers want you to engage with them on social media.
Posting QSR Web’s infograph titled “Restaurant Social Media Top 10” for two reasons.
- To show how much social media has evolved. This infograph illustrates the number of likes/followers each brand had on respective platforms in 2012, which isn’t really even used as a key performance indicator by any brand today.
- To show which restaurant brands were social pioneers! How fun to look back and remember the ones who took the plunge in the early stages.

NewBrand Analytics put together this infograph titled “2014: The Year of Customer Experience.” The findings are as relevant today as they were in 2014.
The title says “marketers;” however I believe this infograph by Keepify really speaks to customer experience as a whole. I think the last point is especially interesting: only 12% of current marketing spend is used to to retain customers. Here’s something that is not included in the infograph: some companies spend no marketing dollars at all to tout exceptional customer service. Providing excellent customer support on social media is a great venue in which to showcase your company’s great customer service.
This infograph by Visual.ly shares statistics that indicate customers who engage with companies on social spend more money, and would prefer to use online support options if they are reliable.
I’m hopping the pond (and departments) to bring you a clever and informative infograph from Experian. Sure, they’re measuring in pounds and labeling things as “marketing,” but they clearly illustrate that longer wait times cause customers to leave, which mean you lose business. That ties back to my recent post, Waiting Takes Too Long For Customers. They also discuss accurate targeting, which means getting the right message to the right customer in the right place/time. Getting that targeting wrong leads customers to think you’re not listening to them, which often leads them to assume you don’t care enough to listen. The multichannel marketing lane can cause the same reaction in customers, because they already told you once how they felt/what they wanted, why should they have to tell you again? Good read. Cheers!
Found this great infograph Five9 shared by Five9. I think it’s critical from an operational perspective to select a tool that allows visibility to traditional call center metrics. These metrics provide valuable insight into what is coming in and how much. Then, once you decide strategically which pieces to answer, it’s great to have the ability to turn the volume on or off.

I like this infograph by Sage because it gets right to the heart of how doing great customer service is rewarded by customers staying with you. Many dissatisfied customers never share the reasons they leave for other companies; they just go. One reason, possibly unspoken, is a lack of excellent customer service. Social media is very visible and a great place to showcase the great service your company provides every day.
